What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Super Foods



Japanese food artist Kishimoto Takehiro (A.K.A. Gaku) is a master of the arts of Thai fruit carving and the Japanese food carving known as mukimono. His creations take hours to complete, and often incorporate the color gradients and differences in texture found in the fruit or vegetable being carved. The way the artist uses the natural attributes of his medium is truly remarkable. What an amazing skill to be able to see what the fruit or vegetable could become!

You can see all of Gaku’s beautiful food carvings on Instagram and Twitter.

      I concur with janhaltn. Well done!

      These superbly crafted and EYE-CATCHING food items are too precious to eat and too ephemeral to last.
